and supervisors. my name is paul, i am a member of the san francisco youth commission. i'm also a resident of district 9. and the youth commission is actually really optimistic about this memorandum of understanding. we feel that it is something that mainly fosters great relationships, mutual respect between the police department as well as students. but at the same time we really want to set a very clear expectation for the san francisco police department and also the unified school district, and that being that in the design, the practice and the implementation of this memorandum we really want to make sure that the students are not treated as subjects, but instead as active stakeholders in this process. we feel like students' input should be involved in the design, but also take into consideration things like students' involvement in the selection of [speaker not understood], also evaluation of [speaker not understood], that is really important. and as well as what was said earlier, to the extent you have student input, what that does is it affirms and values that students have a voice

neighborhoods coalition. >> good afternoon, supervisors, i am on the chair for the coalition for san francisco neighborhoods land use and housing committee, but i would like to speak on this issue, because it's so important. and the coalition does support save muni in regard to central subway. i do want to support the attorney general representing save muni, howard wong. their statements and i think they should not be taken so lightly. and i hope your city attorney, i'm not sure if he is here or not, could give an opinion? but i do want to make some comments about the central subway. i spoke about this many, many months ago at the board. and it seems like the comments from the board of supervisors was that oh, we're getting this almost free. we're getting all of this money from the federal government. we're hardly putting up any money. which may be true. however, you have to look at some of the other unintended consequences. for example, if you complete this project, there is going to be expenses incurred to maintain it. and it's going to take away from muni operations. i think that is clear.
